Female artist, Shizuyo Seagusa, chief designer for Kimura Glass Company in Tokyo, Japan, has created the Kikatsu glassware collection. Each glass is a unique work of art with every aspect contributing to its artistic expression - from the thickness of the glass to its size and shape, and finally to the etched design that completes the piece. Requiring the talents of master craftspeople, each glass is blown by mouth and hand etched. Producing one glass requires a painstaking 30 minutes to one hour and must be done very carefully as not to break the fragile glass.
Please note: As each glass is hand-etched without the aid of stencils or any mechanical device, individual glasses may differ slightly from the image. While we keep limited stock of Kikatsu glassware in house, most orders are placed with Kikatsu directly. Please allow 3-4 weeks for shipment.
